Tonight we will drink not one cup but four, as we recount the journey from exodus to liberation, a journey that stops in many places along the way.  We come first to the recognition of slavery, of degradation, of narrowness.  Until we know the ways in which we are enslaved, we can never be free.  We drink this first cup in honor of awareness.
